standard tuning

G               D
Ain't no talkin to this man

Ain't no pretty other side

Ain't no way to understand the stupid words of pride

                 Asus   A                G                A
It would take an acrobat, and I already tried all that so
                D  G  D
I'm gonna let him fly

Things can move at such a pace

The second hand just waved goodbye

You know the light has left his face
But you can't recall just where or why
                   Asus      A
So there was really nothing to it

                G                    A
I just went and cut right through it

                         D G D
I said I'm gonna let him fly

           G               A
There's no mercy in a live wire

No rest at all in freedom

G                     Em            Bm
Of the choices we are given it's no choice at all

    G               A
The proof is in the fire

    D                      Bm     F#m
You touch before it moves away

Em                                            A
But you must always know how long to stay and when to go

And there ain't no talkin to this man

He's been tryin to tell me so

                  G                             Bm
It took awhile to understand the beauty of just letting go

                       G                  Em          A
Cause it would take an acrobat, I already tried all that

A                  D G D
I'm gonna let him fly

G                 D
I'm gonna let him fly

G                 D
I'm gonna let him fly
